Chico CA Bidwell Park Photography by local artist John Peters

I, like so many others, have become entranced by the photographic stylings of John Peters, Chico photographer.  John has dedicated more than 3 years and 15,000 photos to a project focused on capturing the essence of our own Bidwell Park.

John’s photographs featuring Salmon Hole, the fish ladders at One Mile, Iron Canyon, Big Chico Creek, Horseshoe Lake, and local wild and plant life intrigue viewers from all over the world.  He has been extraordinarily generous in allowing me to share his work here for both local residents past and present to enjoy, as well as individuals considering relocating to the beautiful Chico, CA area.

My goal for this work is that it may help to inspire a renewed sense of appreciation in our community for Bidwell Park and help to develop a clear plan to sustain and preserve this sacred trust for current & future generations to enjoy its wild and beautiful solitude.  —John Peters

 

 

“John’s photography captures the beauty of Chico’s Bidwell Park with stunning color and wonderful composition. His prints are to be cherished as works of art that remind us how fortunate we are to live in Chico.”

Photographer,
Jim Gregg

John Peters profile picAbout the artist:   John Peters has spent most of his life in Chico, and grew up exploring Bidwell Park.  His childhood is filled with many fond memories of long days spent wandering the trails, enjoying its swimming holes, and discovering many secret wonders throughout the park.

The year 2000 brought a series of tragedies into John’s life.  His family’s home was devastated, he lost a lifelong best friend, and struggled with the declining health of a loved one.

An important part of John’s healing process was retreating to the serene, magnificent beauty of Bidwell Park.  He spent a great deal of time there reflecting, ultimately developing a passion for both photography and creating a greater awareness for preserving the treasure we have in Bidwell Park.

More of his work can be found at his website,  Bidwell Park Arts.  Prints are available for a nominal fee, and are sure to become cherished favorites–  what a fabulous gift idea!

Sycamore Beach Park in Chico, CA

Sycamore Beach Park- The view of Cal Park Lake in the fall.I just couldn’t resist stopping at Sycamore Beach Park yesterday to get this picture. I was driving through the California Park neighborhood in Chico, CA to preview a new listing. (It should be a nice Chico foreclosure property if you’ve been watching for something in this area! Drop me a note, and I will be sure to let you know when it hits the market.)Let me get back on track… Sycamore Beach Park is one of several beautiful park areas located in the California Park neighborhood. There are three green areas located on Idyllwild Drive alone! The Sycamore Beach Park is one of my favorites because of the large grassy area and gorgeous view of California Park Lake. The area is usually wide open- you feel like you have the whole place to yourself!Be sure to stop by and enjoy the fall colors reflecting in the lake… they won’t last much longer!More on the California Park neighborhood:The View from a Canoe- California Park in Chico, CA

The View from a Canoe- California Park in Chico, CA

Take a ride with me!

The California Park residential neighborhood is the only one in Chico, CA that boasts lake frontage.

Truly, the view from the water is unlike anything you will see from the road!

The first time we put our canoe in the water, we were in awe of the variety of home styles: we saw everything from “southern charm” to “ultra modern.” Each back yard had something different to offer. There were private boat docks, a sand beach, hammocks, landscaped terraces, gorgeous waterfalls, weeping willows, and my all time favorite: bright red canoes!

If you have the opportunity to visit the California Park area, a tour from the lake is a fun way to explore. (Note: The lakes are private. You must actually be a resident or guest.) There are 2 lakes, and two of them connect under a bridge on Lakewest Drive. There are several idyllic coves in which you will find residents enjoying the lifestyle unique to Cal Park. You might wave hello to a grandpa teaching his grandson to fish, view one of several large, grassy park areas, or (if you are REALLY lucky) spot one of the turtles that calls the lake home.

The neighborhood also boasts a series of cascading duck ponds which delight young and old alike. It is such a treat to visit the lakes in time to watch the baby ducks! There are usually families that include lots of fluffy babies, all chasing after the mama duck. The lake is shallow enough in many places to view the fish swimming below. And, if you’re paying attention, you can hear the tell-tale “ker-plop!” of a bullfrog jumping in the blue-green water!
